The Big Crafty in Asheville, NC

I found out about a really neat-looking show (The Big Crafty)from a lovely artist on Flickr named Katie Daisy.
I believe that Asheville is quite an artist's paradise anyway, so when the town comes together to promote indie art shows, you can't beat it!

Selvedge Summer Fair (happened June 26)

This event was probably a blast! The magazine Selvedge is one that I love browsing while at Barnes and Noble. The stories, images, and even advertisements are just such great resources. I am just now beginning to explore their website, sand you should too! My favorite part of the magazine is probably the ads to be honest :)

Below is an image of their current cover...

You may want to sit down for this one: Creative Connection in Minneapolis, MN

This show looks amazing! It would be totally worth buying a plane ticket for!

"Nancy Soriano and Jo Packham of Where Women Create are pleased to announce the joint venture and launch of The Creative Connection, a new type of event that brings together creative women and women entrepreneurs in one setting. THE CREATIVE CONNECTION is all about being inspired on every level. We believe that every class, every panel, every meal should be creative and inspirational. To that end, TCC is featuring designers and their work at each of our event meals.
Read below to learn whose creative touches will delight you as you enter the Nicolette Ballroom for your Keynote Dinner, your Boxed Lunch with Entrepreneurs, your Editorial Panel Breakfast, or The Cupcake Farewell.
We are all about the finishing touches …"

See Their BLOG
and Their FACEBOOK

Some of the featured artists include:

Our Welcome Keynote Dinner will be a literal garden of color as you find your seat at tables COVERED in cloths created from Amy’s newest fabric. You will be LOST in Amy’s world of BRIGHT, BOLD, BEAUTIFUL colors.

If you look closely when you are seated for dinner, you will find gift boxes FILLED with the SURPRISE of an exclusively designed, elegantly handcrafted, Lisa Leonard piece of jewelry for each of our CREATIVE CONNECTION attendees.

Kaari is the design inspiration behind the French Country flavor of our BOXED LUNCH with ENTREPRENEURS. The tables resemble a picnic with brown boxes sealed in Kaari’s stickers and embroidered French table runners sitting underneath your fruited iced tea served in ball jars wrapped in twine.

Our Italian Girl in Georgia is all handmade, crisp country whites and natural cotton home goods. When you enter the all white Shabby Chic decor of our EDITORIAL PANEL BREAKFAST you will discover Suzanne’s gift to you: her handmade Millinery Flower Pins . . . Perfect for your summer T-shirts or lapels.

If anyone goes to this event, I would love to hear about it and see some images. Thank you all!

So, I just found out more information about the Festivalet. Earlier this year, I posted their super cute video HERE.

Anyways, on
Flickr today, I found a few more photos! This indoor event seems to be held in a store front location, not outdoors. That is sometimes nicer doing an indoor show, even in the summer. You always know the weather conditions will be favorable for you and the visitors!

Anyways, here are a few images from the Festivalet, and you can find their website HERE. Also check out duduadudua for more info as well. It is not in English, but still filled with great photos!!

Thanks to Alicia, a Flickr member, for some of these images!! Please view her work HERE...
